San Francisco 49 miles Scenic Drive -1

When you are visiting some place for sightseeing, you will get information, you will plan schedule where to go when to go, then you go. For the people who are living there, they know a lot of good places to visit in the area where they live. But, they never go to these places. For example, I was born and raised in Tokyo. Tokyo has a lot of sightseeing point, such as Tokyo Tower. My father took me to Tokyo Tower, when I was 5 years old. Since then, I have never visited Tokyo Tower. I think it is natural difference between visitors and residents.

I have a little bit different situation living in San Francisco. Because this is not where I was born and raised. When I was visiting San Francisco before 1997 when I started to live. I used to plan and schedule the places I visit. So, I have plenty of information of sightseeing in San Francisco. Since started to live, I have not had much of time to visit these places unless I have visitor either from Japan or China. This time, since my mother in law is visiting us, my wife and I took her to several places. One of sightseeing we did was "San Francisco 49 miles Scenic Drive".

H
ave you heard about it? As I continuously say in this blog that San Francisco is romantic place. It is lovely place that entire city is like big theme park. "47 miles Scenic Drive" is to enjoy almost all of good places in this city. I have tried to this scenic drive several times, but have never done from the beginning to the end. This time we did.

Please refer to the map above and I would like to take you to this trip in several articles. It may not be so easy to follow in the map above, but the blue line shows this scenic drive route.

Hi Shaw .. I agree we live within travelling distances of some great sites and as locals we perhaps visit once and then forget .. we should appreciate our history.

So it's really good that you're opening the door to your visitors and getting a chance to revisit places .. which I'm sure you will see with new eyes.

Thanks - Hilary Melton-Butcher

Dear Hilary,

You are right that I am now seeing my city in a different eyes and angles. That opens up some new idea and learning process. It is interesting.

Thank you for your coming and comment.
